Curtis spent his morning doing a lot of computer checkups with people which, for some reason, some of them didn’t work, so it took a bit longer than usual.
That took us most of the morning and then after lunch Curtis had 2 back to back meetings.
The first meeting was a discussion on security and then the second was a meeting in which Curtis was the Business Analyst for the project and had to get some plans together for next steps, which he and the team did successfully.
The day was a bit quieter after that, with Curtis just doing a couple of tickets and some admin before wrapping up for the day.
When Kim got in the office she called a company and asked a few questions and set up an account. It was very easy and a great start to the day.
Kim went on to order a few gift cards, save and chase some reciepts and answered a few calls. She then made some more signs and amended a few that she had.
For the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon Kim and someone from IT went around and cleared more desks, they removed a load of redundant wires, collected up MORE found IT equipment and started a more thorough general office sort out and clean up.
Midway through the afternoon we had someone pop in to assess the plants and tell us how they were these past few months. We managed to only kill one, which Kim is saying is a big win!
We had leftover curry for dinner, with more coconut rice. It was just as good as it was yesterday!
We watched a very funny South African comic whilst we ate and then a couple of episodes of YOU afterwards, which is getting very intense!
We has a 1 – 1.5 hour facetime with Curtis’ family, in which we discussed a whole host of things and just ‘caught up’ in general.
Marina Del Ray
We got ready and then dropped off at Marina Del Ray. We are huge fans of NCIS:LA and had read that the ‘boatshed’ from the show is around this area, so we went looking.
After looking for a bit of time, and coming across a really nice area, we decided to take an e-scooter and head to the opposite side of the marina as we believed the boatshed was on that end.
Low and behold, we couldn’t find it, so we gave up and walked to Venice Beach.
We got to Venice Beach, in terrific weather, and the first port of call was a bite to eat.
As to be expected, there were a lot of expensive places and we stopped in one of them and got pulled pork sliders, which looked good but really weren’t. We didn’t even catch the name of the place we ate, but the food wasn’t that great.
After food, we went for a walk along Venice Beach. We walked for a long while, until we came across Muscle Beach & a skate park.
We spent some time at these places and watched people do their thing. Kim even gave the rope climb a go, which she conquered!
Santa Monica Pier
We walked on from Venice Beach towards Santa Monica pier, where Kim saw a hoop and had to do some tricks on it!
We saw the pier from the beach and then headed up onto it.
The pier really wasn’t that interesting and we had evening plans, so we walked up the road to find a ride back home.
We had to wait a while, but got a ride home and once we got back, we realised that Panda Express was so close, so we got some food from there to save time.
We got the orange chicken again, as well as spicy chicken and Curtis got some wok fired fired shrimp, too!
On the way home, Kim managed to break her flip flops so we had to throw those away and she had to walk home barefooted.
We ate our food and then had to get ready to go back out again.
In West Hollywood, there is a comedy place called Comedy Store which Kim had seen a few well known names were performing tonight, so we got some tickets! Kim got to dress up and even had shoes at this point in the day.
We stood in line for a while, but eventually got in, got our seats and ordered some drinks.
We couldn’t film or take photos at all, but believe us when we say it was a pretty hilarious 3 hours! Whilst watching, we got a bottle of wine to share and Curtis got a whiskey. There was a minimum 2 drink limit anyway, so why not!
We got a Lyft home and it was safe to say it was bed time.
